Thu Duc Water BOO Corp on Monday began commissioning a long-awaited water treatment plant, thus easing the chronic shortage of running water in some parts of districts 7, 8 and Nha Be. The plant will be able to supply 300,000 cubic meters of water a day for residents in the three districts.

This is the first water project in the city developed under BOO (build-operate-own) form with the total cost of over 1.7 trillion dong. The project includes a water pumping station in Dong Nai Province and a treatment plant in HCM City's Thu Duc District.

Saigon Water Corp, or Sawaco, has completed 25.7 kilometres of water pipe for the project, starting from Thu Duc and running through districts 9, 2, 4, 7 and 8 to Ba Chiem Bridge in Nha Be District.

The enterprise will extend the pipeline system in the future to supply more running water for Thu Duc, Binh Thanh and Go Vap districts.

Ly Chung Dan, Sawaco deputy general director, said Sawaco would distribute water from Tan Hiep water plant to districts 4 and 8 to supply water for districts 12, Binh Tan and Cu Chi.

Construction of the project began by the end of 2005 with the capital initially estimated at over 1.5 trillion dong.
